New spy shots of the upcoming FAW-Xiali T012 testing in China, showing the vehicle is almost ready for the China car market. The T102 is a new crossover that will be launched on the Chinese auto market in the second half of 2014 under FAW’s Xiali brand, debut is expected for the Beijing Auto Show in April.
Rear lights rather spectacular. The coming of the T012 has been delayed for more than a year already because FAW was unable to make a decision about the engines. The latest news is that the Xiali T012 will be powered by a naturally aspirated 1.5 mated to a 5-speed manual and by a Toyota-sourced 1.8 mated to a 6-speed automatic. Price will start around 70.000 yuan and end around 100.000 yuan. The T012 is the very first SUV for the Xiali brand.
After a big sales slide, Xiali needs a boost.
